    That's right
    I had a look at the flights a couple weeks ago and was shocked how cheap you could get ones from Belfast to Newcastle, about £50, but only if you book really far in advance! And I only found out last night I could go to the open-day, and even leaving the price aside which is hard to do XD the times don't match up I don't mind waiting or leaving early but I'd hate to be late.

    But yh N.I can be real bugger I hate watching T.v and hearing about all these great deals, and then the predictable "Does not apply to Northern Ireland."
    That is really annoying but at least the flights aren't too long, only about 35mins i think What college are you heading to? Haha i know, especially for insurance-*Exludes NI, raging

    Hey guys. I received an offer for Law on 2nd March and on the letter on Track it said I would be contacted shortly by the college I have been allocated to. I still haven't received any further information and am worried since the open days are next week! I checked on AES and under the college link it said St. Aidans- does this mean I have been allocated there?

    Does anyone know exactly who I can contact to gain information on when my open day is and which college I've been put in etc?
    Thanks.

    St Adian's college for me, how about you? Yh you're right I guess we have it easy compared to other overseas students. I met this girl at a UCL open day who'd flown from Korea just for the open day, 12 hour flight!

    I'm law at Josephine Butler staying at Collingwood though apparently
    RE the open days, as far as I know... haha.
    I chose to have my Butler open day on the 21st and my law open day on the 22nd, so I assume it's the same for you but with a day afterwards?
    What have other people said? Confuzzling me, eek.
    Hi, im Law at JB too and I'm going to the open day on Monday (21st) - Just wondering how you know you're staying at Collingwood? I'm starting to panic because they sent me an email today with just timings for the Monday but haven't let me know where I'm staying and I got my offer months ago and teh money for the night have been cashed by them... Scared now lol xx

    They emailed me in early February, and then sent another revised email in early March saying where I would be staying and eating etc. Did they email you before today? Maybe ring the JB admissions secretaries to check? The email also mentioned red and yellow clothing for the night and I have no idea what to wear

    Crap.. No they didn't email me, but I think they only received it early March so maybe that's why... I'm going to ring up Monday morning before I leave.
    Thanks for the tip-off about the red and yellow clothing!! x Hopefully I'll meet you there!

    Sigh, I have no idea how I am going to visit. Durham still hasn't stated my college yet, and I have a lack of time. (exams in 13 days, and then the massive 'all you have ever done for the past three years' exam in may).. There is so little time in between

    Mine took about 2 weeks for the letter to come (for Physics), but appeared on AES under useful links first after about 9 days. Where did you apply to anyway? (college- wise)

    St Aidan's college is on the hill which explains there chess motto "A Step Above the Rest," ughhhhhh.

    St John's looks great! I love the architecture.
